      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Wave Wacker Scum

Recommended Posts

My wave wackers are cover with scum. It almost looks like oxidation. Does anybody know of any chemicals I can use to clean it? I have tried many of the boat washes and houshold cleaners. One person suggested that I use the acid that truckers use to get the oxidation off of semi trailers. This same stuff is on my motor. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

My wife told me to use white vinegar and was pleased with the result. Hope it works for you also.

Just one product....The Works (toilet and bowl cleaner), it works like magic, spray it on, rinse it off. It will remove any water stain, deposits, etc. Especially heavy stuff. Cost $ .83/bottle at WalMart. Then wax them or spray some silicone, so anything will stick on it.

Just a note about the Works. It is awesome stuff but be sure to rinse anything you use it on really well. It will eat up your chrome etc.

Hello WP,

I personally just use either armorall or son-ofagun spray to remove the water scum or droplets. It works well and doesn't smell as potent! Like D-man said, us a coat of wax or rainX on them and they will shine for a longtime.

It sounds like a good case of hard water stain. Wipe them down with white vinager as one of the previous posts suggests, if that dosen't work to your satisfation, pick up a jug of CLR. You can find it anywhere. Then wax the crap outta them!

Hello WP,

I work for a Metro Plastics Company your Wave Wackers are made of Polycarbonate Sheet plastic. The only recomendation I would suggest is "Do Not" Use Harsh chemicals on them as any Amonia based cleaners or Man made chemicals will break down the properties of the polycarbonate & eliminate the UV protection in the resins of the plastic & this could be bad for them over time in the sun. As stated above use Vineger or a Citrus based product to clean them & wax them really good to prevent future scum.

Good Luck

Hey sportfishin,

Good call on the chemicals.
What company do you work for? Are you hiring engineers?

Speaking of wave wackers,I've been looking to buy one of those for my tracker boat. I've looked everywhere, and I can't seem to find them here in Utah. I need them bad... can I make them or is it specialty made product?

How much do they cost? If selling, what would be a good price?

      Thanks for the update cigarguy- were you lindy rigging?
    • CigarGuy
      Neighbor and I went out in Wakemup for a couple hours tonight and got a 18" and 19" and had a nice one come unbutton on the way in....Leaches and crawlers.  That's good for me!  20 - 34' off a break line.  Del, working on the last flight of the steps-was looking for you to stop by and help!

      I used lead core on Friday and had a ball catching walleyes of all sizes.  I started in the morning and stayed out until I just got tired in the afternoon.  I probably pulled in as many as 20 or so.  My formula was:  90 feet of line, 19-24 ft of water, #5 rattling split deep shad rap.  Silver color.  I kept it right at 2mph.  I also did much better when I pumped the rod in a regular cadence.  Keeping it in the rod holder didn't produce near the fish.

      Ace, I hope you enjoy your retirement.  I hired you one time and my boy and I had a good time.  I appreciate the hard work you did on putting us on fish.  Good Luck and maybe "Little Ace" can continue the family business some day!   Michael Theis

      These are legal aliens.  Glad you enjoyed your lunch.

      Trolling or casting jigs and spinners(silver or gold are best for pike IMO) near the weeds, in bays, etc, cranks, and top water buzz baits around weedy areas are how I get most of my pike. Use a leader. Orange jig heads with a sparkly yellow twister tail and a jumbo leech gets me more pike than any other method. Your mileage may vary.

      I had lunch there a couple of days ago. Great service and good food! I did not see any illegal type aliens there at that time!  Cliff
